The George W. Mergens Foundation accepts proposals on a rolling basis and reviews them at monthly board meetings. Any 501(c)3 organization is welcome to submit a proposal at any time via e-mail or mail. We provide general operating, project, and capital support through annual grants. Typical grants range from $1,000 to $25,000, with occasional larger and multi-year commitments. The Foundation does not typically consider more than one request for funding from an organization during any twelve month grant period. Please note the following entities are ineligible for a grant; individuals, endowments or private foundations, federal, state, or municipal agencies, and political campaigns.
We understand your time is valuable. If you are interested in funding, but are unsure if your organization or project meets our criteria, please submit an inquiry below and we will contact you for more information if we wish to take your request to the next step.
